TECH­NI­CAL

Canal Boat - - The Boat Test -

Tech­ni­cally, this boat is fairly straight­for­ward. The en­gine is the ubiq­ui­tous Beta 43, but, as was Steve Hud­son’s habit, it’s sprayed sil­ver, rather than the usual green. As this is a shorter boat than most, there’s no room in the en­gine hole for a hospi­tal si­lencer.

Elec­tri­cal power comes from four 160Ah do­mes­tic bat­ter­ies, plus one for the en­gine. A 240-volt sup­ply is from a Vic­tron 3kW Multi-in­verter/charger. The shore­line point is at the stern.

Heat­ing comes from an Eber­spächer diesel boiler.
